This book is a first-of-its kind that looks at adaptation with an ear to the ground. It looks into why some actions worked, the challenges and enabling conditions.

    COVID-19 : A NEW WORLD DISORDER (eBook)

    The covid-19 pandemic can be regarded as the globalised world’s most localised emergency. It has gained notoriety as the world’s fastest disease outbreak that turned into a pandemic. Barring lifestyle ailments, no other contemporary disease or infection has ever gripped the globe at this speed in recent memory. It has forced over half of the world’s population into an involuntary lockdown, and brought nations and their economies to their knees. Six months into the pandemic, the world is yet to even imagine a recovery. It is an epochal event that is (and will be) fundamentally changing the world order and the way we exist in consonance with nature. From political and economic ideologies to natural resource extraction, and to global trade and performance of development schemes, covid-19 has impacted all our existential coordinates. This book, and the articles in it, not only offers the first draft of the pandemic’s immediate history but also explores what the world would be like, after this. One might refer to it as the “new normal” and argue its inevitability and its acceptance, but the writers here paint a picture of a world like never before. The question we may ask is, how prepared are we for such a world? Order your copy and know more about this right away.

The Environment and Climate Change activity book has been designed in a way that children will be able to complete the tasks in a home environment while teachers can use the activities in the classroom to keep students engaged. This book will:
    • Deliver comprehensive and detailed understanding of important environmental issues;
    • Provide knowledge on what can be done to protect various facets of environment;
    • Provide hands-on activities to stimulate learning by doing; and
    • Encourage out-of-the-box thinking and making the right choice when it comes to environment protection.
    This book is ideally for children in the age group of 10–14 years. The activities will help them understand concepts and explore ways to apply them in daily life. Parental guidance may also be required and parents are encouraged to participate with their children, making the activities a family bonding time. With crosswords, scrambled words and word search, this book will pique the curiosity of children and lead them to delve further into the subject of environment. Interspersed are ‘Fun Facts’, ‘Key Tips’ and ‘Did you know?’ to enhance general knowledge of the environment, and stories and comic strips to engage children.

    Body Burden: Antibiotic Resistance – State of India’s Health

    This is the third edition in our Body Burden - State of India's Health series. The first two were on Lifestyle Diseases and Communicable Diseases. It is a resistance that can undo historical gains made in modern medicine to control diseases. Microbes have become resistant to antibiotics, and Big Pharma has stopped funding research to find new antibiotics. The magic bullet – that antibiotics were commonly called – have stopped performing miracles. It is estimated that by 2050, 10 million people will die due to antibiotic resistance, most of them from developing countries. India is the top consumer of antibiotics in the world. It is also known for indiscriminate use which leads to resistance. Other than being used to treat diseases in human beings, antibiotics are also used as growth promoters in animals and in crops. Due to rampant use, it is present everywhere in our environment – water, hospitals, houses and even in the food that we eat. Body Burden: Antibiotic Resistance unravels a public health crisis in India that is going to soon become a nightmare.
